of america will also forge the partnerships that this undertaking demands. we will partner with the haitian people, and that includes the government of haiti which needs our support as they recover from the devastation of this earthquake. it also includes the many haitian-americans who are determined to help their friends and family. and i've asked vice president biden to meet in south florida this weekend with members of the haitian-american community and with responders who are mobilizing to help the haitian people. we will partner with the united nations and its dedicated personnel and peacekeepers, especially those from brazil who are already on the ground due to their outstanding peacekeeping efforts there. and i want to say that our hearts go out to the united nations which has experienced one of the greatest losses in its history. we have no doubt that we can carry on the work that was done by so many of the u.n. efforts that have been lost, and we see that their legacy is haiti's hope for the future. we will partner with other nations and organizations, and that's why i've been reac
deputy steinberger discharges based on the believe china cannot be contained and therefore we, america, and the international committee must accept its rise to power. in return, we seek a china's reassurance that it stature will not come at the expense or security of other nations. for example, strategic assurance may be demonstrate in part by china's cooperation with the united states and other nations on matters of shared interest. in particular, within the last year we worked together in our handling of the global financial crisis. countering piracy off the east coast of africa, and isolating north korea for its persistent and aggressive nuclear and missile tests. while these are positive steps in our relationship, we cannot ignore the reality that china still fall short in the calm of reassurance. actions speak louder than words. here are but a few examples. first, on monday china demonstrate its resolve to expand its strategic capabilities with the missile defense tests. as of yesterday we heard from the pentagon that this test was conducted without advance notification to the uni

. the president came forward today, talking about fining some of america's largest financial institutions, those with $50 billion in assets or more. why? because he wants them to cover the shortfall in the t.a.r.p. funds. everybody knows that controversial $700 billion bailout fund as many call it. it turns out that the good news is that the government's shortfall or exposure to that will only be $117 billion. now the president is saying some of these big companies with big assets are going to have to be the ones to repay it through a fee. although, problems ahead with that, jeff. it's going to be congress that's going to have to pass that legislation to form that fee structure. here is what the president had to say earlier today. >> we've now recovered the majority of the funds provided to banks. as far as i'm concerned, however, that's not good enough. my commitment is to the taxpayer. my commitment is to recover every single dime the american people are owed. and my determination to achieve this goal is only heightened when i see reports of massive profits and obscene bonuses at some of the v
